YEAR BY THE SEA

YEAR BY THE SEA poster

Janet's TAKE: #YearByTheSea is a scenic tale of self-discovery reminiscent, albeit a female version, of "A Walk In The Woods". B-

While a good performance from both actresses, Joan's (Karen Allen) relationship with
her mentor Joan Erikson (Celia Imries) doesn't quite have the chemistry of Redford and Nolte.

Synopsis:
After 30 years as a wife and mother, an empty nester retreats to Cape Cod rather than follow her relocated husband to Kansas. Intent to rediscover herself but plagued with guilt, she questions her decision until stumbling upon a spirited mentor. Supported by her literary agent and a host of locals, including a sexy fisherman, our heroine learns to embrace the ebb and flow of life—ultimately discovering the balance between self and sacrifice, obligation and desire. The film is drawn from Joan Anderson’s book YEAR BY THE SEA. A book on NYT list for more than 30 weeks. -Real Women Make Waves
